The Second Edition of Making Money is Killing Your Business is built on profoundly simple ideas that have been around forever and ignored as being too simple to work. Chuck Blakeman has learned the hard way that profound things are always simple. The Four Building Blocks, Seven Stages of Business Ownership, Business Owner's Game, Freedom Mapping, 2pg Strategic Plan, Lifetime Goals and many other practical tools will revolutionize any business willing to give up complexity for effectiveness.

Get off the treadmill. Making Money helps business owners move from a focus on trying to make money to building a business that does it for them when they are not around. It debunks the idea that small business is a 30 year grind, and introduces the concept of building a business in just three to five years that runs itself.

Making Money also replaces the traditional concept of retirement with using your business to quickly build your Ideal Lifestyle, moving you and your business from survival through success to significance.

Your business should produce both time and money, not just money. This book helps business owners make more money in less time, get back to the passion that brought them into business in the first place, and build a business they can enjoy for decades.

Do you want to get off the treadmill? Do you have freedom? Read Making Money Is Killing Your Business and build a business you'll love that also gives you a life of Significance. The Random Hope Strategy of Business doesn't work. You get what you intend, not what you hope for.

Review:

 -Bookzone Publishing Corporation, Beijing, China. Wow. Chuck Blakeman is clear.

When reviewing Making Money is Killing Your Business, the biggest urge I had was just to cut and paste whole sections of it, Here's a sample:

I think businesses should grow up...I don't mean it would be nice if it happened. I mean we should all, everyone of us, expect our businesses to grow up and start giving back to us and to the world around us. We should assume that at some point our business would move from survival right through success to Significance.

Nobody would argue with me that we should intend for our children to grow up, leave home, and become grownups we could enjoy for decades, but when was the last time we had a similar conversation about our businesses? It's normal for children to grow up, so why isn't it normal for businesses to do the same thing? Frankly, we’re in charge of both of them at birth, and if you’ve had kids, you’ll know that you’ve got more control over the maturity of your business than the maturity of your kids.

Chuck does more than offer a simple paradigm shift. He shows how to do it, and shares examples of clients who walked that walk with him. Real crisp, concise examples, including the client’s words and actionable steps that you can do...today.

Given the clarity of writing and the proven, doable steps that Chuck shares in Making Money is Killing Your Business, it deserves sales like Good to Great by Jim Collins. That would put sales for Chuck's book at around 3-4 million. That sounds right. --Zane Safrit Book Reviews Making Money is Killing Your Business has been translated to Mandarin and is being distributed in mainland China.

It has also been translated to Spanish for availability in all Spanish-speaking countries. --Amazon - Books
